Green and Black’s Chocolate Giveaway

It’s good to have friends in high places. That’s why I keep Feisty Foodie close…well, also because she appreciates a good “that’s what she said” joke as much as I do.
Really, we are quite obnoxious to be around. 
 Anyway, when she invited me to a Green and Black’s event, I was beyond psyched. I have had Green and Black’s organic chocolate before, and I commend the company’s dedication to fair prices to the farmers who grow the beans. 
 Also, the chocolate is outstanding. The White Chocolate is amazingly thick and complex – not sickeningly sweet like so many white chocolates are. The Mayan Gold is gently spicy with cinnamon, and the Salted Peanut Milk Chocolate is a Snickers bar gone deluxe. 
 What I didn’t know is that you can use Greens and Blacks to cook. Wouldn’t that be like using caviar in a tuna fish sandwich?
Actually, no. As delicious as the chocolate is for eating plain, it is formulated for baking as well. The flavors enhance and intensifiy in cookies, cakes, and such. The Cherry Chocolate bar would be so great in a bread pudding. 
 When we sat down to try our hands at making tiramisu, we got to see how well the chocolate works with other ingredients. The Mayan Gold was just outstanding with the creamy mascarpone, bitter espresso, and tangy madeira. 
Too bad you couldn’t try the tiramisu. It was really great. 
Of course…you CAN try Green and Black’s!
The company has graciously donated a sampler box of delicious chocolates. To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment in the comments section. The winner will be announced Monday, January 23!
In the meantime, here is my musical tribute to some of the best chocolate I have ever tasted…

    Psst, January 23rd.

  2. I love hearing you sing, Sarah. But hearing you sing about chocolate takes it to whole other level.
    Once many years ago, I was very pregnant with my firstborn and dining in an Upper West Side boite when my husband reached across the table for a bite of my dessert (a delightfully light chocolate mousse cake) and I pinned his hand to table with the tines of my fork. "Hey," I said. "To you, chocolate is just a food." This seemed to me to be a perfect justification for the almost-stabbing. No blood was actually spilled, but I remain fairly confident that any all-woman jury would acquit.

  3. Sounds Fantastic just like you!
    love the blog!

  4. I heart chocolate!

  5. Wow, super yum to Green and Black's Dark 70%!!

  6. Several years ago I was working with an awesome costume designer who had to leave to return to NYC for a few days in the middle of the build. When she returned she brought several bars of Green and Blacks for us to share…all I remember was the mad dash towards the break room and the yummy yumminess.

  7. Still love reading your blog….I was totally psyched when I won the pickles last contest and am trying to go for the 2-fer……

    Rock on Fritos and Foie

  8. You should be on Broadway! 🙂

    That salted peanut butter milk chocolate sounds…. like I might need an intervention to ever stop eating it! LOVE your blog and the way you write! I'm always laughing out loud and wishing I had your sense of humor! ^_^

  17. I've been itching to use Green & Black in my baking but it's kind of expensive for me. Winning this would help me find out if it's worth it.
